    Looking to purchase a recent Macbook Pro/Air with some remaining warranty. I would prefer a 13" screen but would think about a 15" as well.
    Payment would be cash or bank transfer as I don't do PayPal

    Cheers

    Thanks for the reply, I did see your advert before and it is possible I might be interested, I'd probably prefer the newer model if I can get one. Let's see what I get offered
    Thanks

    @bferbrache FYI my partner now wants a Pro so her 2018 Retina Air will be up for sale if of interest in preference to the older style model? Its the base model so 1.6GHz i5, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. In perfect boxed condition (we take care of our kit in this family!) with very low battery count and remaining warranty until November this year I think it is... Space Grey. Probably looking at around £950/975....

    Thanks for the offer but I think your price seems ambitious, I believe that John Lewis are selling these for £1069. That's brand new with a 2 year warranty.
    Thanks anyway

    No worries... Out of interest, what do you think it's worth? Its basically new, I think battery count is still in single figures...

    I always look at CEX to see what they sell, exchange or buy for and they sell at £815 (with a 2 year warranty), they will give you a trade in of £570 or buy for £472.
    That's the kind of deal I was hoping to pick up, sorry if that's not what you were hoping for but I suspect we are going to be quite far apart in valuations
    Thanks for getting in touch though

    Crikey, are they really only worth that much second hand? No way would I sell to CEX either - their prices are a joke, plus you never really know the history of buying second hand from them.
    My mate still has that 2017 Air if you fancy it.
    Cheers
